Eternal Darkness was formed in Eskilstuna, Sweden 1990 by Make Pesonen and Rokki Toni. The other death metal maniacs who joined were Janne Heikkinen, Tero Viljanen, Jonas Strandell.
The band recorded two demo cassettes titled Ceremony Of Doom and Suffering which were both self financed recordings that were sold in death metal underground scene. The group was hailed as pure old school death/doom metal with a instant feel of devastation and loss. Eternal Darkness went to be a cult act.
In early stage of 1990 Jonas Strandell left the band to join Crypt Of Kerberos and was replaced by Jarmo Kuurola. In 1991 the group performed live concerts with Beherit, Impaled Nazarene, Crypt Of Kerberos, Gorefeast, Sentenced, Demigod, Demilich among others.
Eternal Darkness released a 7"Ep vinyl titled "Doomed" through cult label Distorted Harmony Records in February 1992. 1000 copies of the vinyl was pressed. A rare collectors item nowadays. A mini lp titled "Twilight In The Wilderness" was recorded later that same year but became unreleased due to several reasons.
A deal with Necropolis Records was signed but things went to hell. In 1993 several new songs was written for a supposed full lenght album. Later same year groups original lead guitarist Rokki Toni Pietil leave the band. Chaos was breeding around the band during this year. Janne, Tero, Jarmo, Make decide to take a break until a new guitarist was found. 1994 Jonas Strandell is back with demand and Eternal Darkness was about to start rehearsing again. The long awaited full-lenght album was planned to be recorded in Studio Skyline in August 1995. Unfortunately things went to hell : Guitarist Jarmo Kuurola was killed on June 12th 1995.
